The Boys Of Our Generation





Warning: Sensitive Content


It's so easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of romance and the idea of love, to actually take a step back and see what's happening around you. Lydia and I have had our fair share of chatting to boys. This is the majority of the time in a friendly manner. And seeing and hearing what they have to say has literally made me disgusted. So, I have decided to write my thoughts on the subject as I am appalled by some's behaviour.

So I have a few experiences I'd like to share with you and I will not be beating around the bush. So, if you are offended by sensitive content then I recommend you stop reading the blog post. I was torn whether I should explain the scenario and leave out the harsh comments or just say the truth. Which I believe I have chosen the right one by telling the truth, if boys sit there and think it's acceptable to send it to a female, then I am sure it is acceptable to post it on our blog.

Firstly, we have the story which I like to call, The Coward.


One evening I was minding my own business until a message popped up on my Instagram. Intrigued, I opened it up and it was a Lad the same age as me. It was a simple, Hey. Being the friendly person I am, I replied back with Hello. After the normal chit-chat, he asked me "What's the cheekiest thing you've done?", I knew straight away he wanted to know personal information etc. Which at this point alarm bells rung as I did not know the guy from Adam and he was wanting to know personal information. I replied back 'None of your business' and he continued to pester me, with comments like 'You're boring' or 'You're frigid'... I am lucky in that sense that when I truly believe in something I am not afraid to speak up. I messaged him this 'I am afraid I'm not going to stand there and let you treat a girl like this. Your behaviour is disgusting and I think you should really think about the way you talk to girls. If you thought to come in at me like that would impress me, your sadly mistaken. Also, if you think I am going to tell a complete stranger my personal life, again your mistaken. Stop treating girls ill-mannered and piss off'.

The next story is short but sweet.. well bittersweet story!

This guy on facebook sent me a private messaged. I opened it up and it said 4 glorious words. "Show us your tits". Fantastic. I don't need to say anymore. I think this story speaks for itself. Other than that individual must be lonely, sad and a low life. I did not reply to that comment. I blocked him instead.



My final story is the one I like to call, Busted!


This guy added me on Snapchat and sent me a message, it was of his torso and the band of his boxers, show off the Calvin Kleins. That I'm sure after knowing his personality, he owns one pair and uses them for his pictures. Anyway, I basically send snaps back with my Pug Unicorn pyjamas. The guy continuously asked me for explicit photos. I continued to decline. After a few attempts, I sent him this back 'Please stop asking me to send you explicit photos. I do not know you very well and it is something I agree with personally'. After that, I told Lydia about the guy.

To which we discovered something. Just a few hours before he was speaking to Lydia inappropriately as well! Lydia told him that the only pictures he would on get Snapchat were pictures of her dogs, which he blocked her straight away. Which we both found weird he kept asking me. So I had a plan. I got the guy to follow me on Instagram so he would see pictures of Lydia on there. I asked him if he recognised anyone on there and he said no should he? At this point, I am so disgusted that he is actually pretending to not recognise Lydia. I told him did he recognise my friend Lydia? he again lied and said no didn't know a Lydia. So, I sent him this 'I think you're lying or you speak to that many girls asking for nudes that you can't remember Lydia. I'll remind you, you spoke to her today asking her for photos like you did me? I assume you do that to most girls, I am afraid your speaking to the wrong girl, I have self-respect and don't go around sending pictures to random guys! You need to grow up and have some respect towards women and try to keep it in your pants!'... I am not surprised he blocked me straight after without a reply. Also blocked me on Instagram!


After experiencing these situations, I felt the need to write this blog post. Not to be like all boys are like this bad blah blah! I am writing to enlighten all the women out there to stand up for what you believe in. I do trust in the fact that there are women that will willingly send explicit photos to strangers, but that is not something I would do. I have self-respect and I assume there are girls out there who aren't strong enough to say no. Which I'm not highlighting that everyone is their own person. But please if you are ever in an uncomfortable situation like any of these, please say NO or speak to a trusted friend who can encourage you to do the right thing. You should never let boys treat you like this and expect you to do their every word.


Thank You,

Jade

Autumn Lookbook 2018




It's November, which means we are well into autumn. Autumn is one of our favourite times of the year! It's not too cold, but more layers are beginning to be needed. Plus all the beautiful colours of autumn, the reds, oranges, browns and greens. And what better way to appreciate this time of year than with a Lookbook.




Firstly, we have Jade's outfit. This is a really cute and simple outfit that still stands out and looks great! It consists of a burgundy red pinafore dress with a long sleeve white top underneath, with black tights and finished with black Dr. Martens. The pinafore dress was £30 from New Look, the simple white long sleeve top was £6 from Matalan, with the tights also from Primark, and the, Dr. Martens at £90. The shoes might be a little on the pricey side, but they add an edgy feel to the outfit plus they keep your feet warm. This outfit is perfect for this time of year. It looks great, plus it is super comfortable!


Next, is Lydia's outfit. This outfit is a very simple but effective. The main part of the outfit is the burnt orange trousers, they are super comfy and also look good, the trousers are paired with a plain black t-shirt and black loafers. The trousers are from Primark and cost £15, the black t-shirt was from ASOS for about £10, the loafers were also from Primark costing around £10 too. This outfit is also great for anytime of year but the colour of the trousers really suit this time of year.


Both of these outfits are comfortable, practical and look great! The red and orange in these outfits really do suit this time of year as they are the main colours you see. We love these outfits so much! What's your go-to autumnal outfit?




Thank You,

Jade & Lydia

5SOS Concert




One of our favourite things to do is going to concerts, and what better way to share our love of them then by telling you about our latest concert! Some of you may know that for my 18th birthday, Jade got me tickets to see 5 Seconds Of Summer. Jade completely surprised me with them, we had 'tried' for tickets, but unfortunately Jade said we didn't get any. Then on my birthday (8th August) I opened up to see we had tickets to 5SOS!! (the BEST surprise ever!)

So, the concert was last night, Monday 29th October 2018. It was amazing, they were brilliant again. Ive seen them before in 2016 and they were really good and since then I wanted to see them again, so when Jade was trying for tickets, and she made me think we hadn't got them, I was really disappointed. So, I was very excited when I opened them on my birthday!



The picture above is the support band. The support band to 5SOS were called Lovely The Band, neither of us had heard of these before but they weren't too bad really.



The first song they came out to was Babylon. I love this song, and it was great live! 

They also sang classics of theirs including She's Kinda Hot, Amnesia, Jet Black Heart and She Looks So Perfect. So, it wasn't all from their new album, although I do love their new album!



They were absolutely fantastic again. They sang perfectly and had such good stage presence!


I love all of their music, especially their new album! But I was glad they sang other songs from their past albums. They absolutely nailed 'Amnesia' it was so perfect to hear it live again!


They ended the show with a bow to the crowd. I absolutely loved seeing them live again, it was amazing!

5 Seconds Of Summer where amazing to see live again! I'm so glad we could see them. Thank you so much Jade for the best surprise birthday present! I absolutely loved it!! What is your favourite 5SOS song? 

Thank You,

Lydia
